Question about Amana Kitchen Ranges
Maytag Amana Range Easy Touch Control 500 - Gas Model #AGR5715QDW Ideally looking for LP to NG conversion instructions, but would be thrilled with factory NG to LP conversion instructions. Purchased use and is currently converted to LP. I need to convert it back to NG. Installation instructions state an LP Conversion Kit and instructions came (new) attached to back of range, but there is no saved NG hardware or the LP conversion instructions with range now. Knowing that it came new with a LP Conversion Kit makes me assume more than just the Pressure Regulator orifice needs to be changed out. I surely wish I had those instructions, as they would show all that needed to do in reverse (from LP back to NG). That brings me to my questions. On this model (#AGR5715QDW) what all has to be done to convert LP to NG? I am knowledgeable of basic (old) converting, but want to make sure I cover all bases correctly with this model. Pressure regulator – done by switching orifice to NG. Bake burner – orifice change, shutter adjustment or both? Broil burner – orifice change, shutter adjustment or both? Surface burners – orifice/stub change, shutter adjustment or both? Does anything else need changed out or adjusted? Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you, Jamie

I have a Thermadore 6 burner gas cooktop PCG366E purchased January 08. I purchased the LP conversion kit, they only make one kit for all models. The instructions included with the kit were written for an older model and have not been updated by Thermador. The gas regulator is located next to gas inlet pipe. You have to get at it from above. Remove the 2 star burners over that side of the cooktop. You will need a 20mm socket to remove the nut at the center of the star burner. Lift it off and disconnect the wire to the ignitor ( You need to push on the spring lock in order to seperate the the connector terminal). Remove the stainless steel pan and then remove the metal pan underneath ( you will need a Torxs bit for this screw or vise grips). You should now see the regulator. At the top of the regulator is a cap with the letters NG visible. Twist this a 1/4 turn ccw, lift up and turn over to expose the letters LP reinsert. The regulator is now ready. You will need to replace the orifice tips at each burner. Use a 7mm socket with an extension. Put a piece of tape in the socket to hold the orifice in place while you insert it. You also need to adjust the valves. You must pull off the knobs and and remove the trim bezel. If you look through the screw hole on the right you will see a screw head (bypass screw). Insert long skinny flat blade screwdriver through the hole and turn the screw CW all the way (about 1/4 to 1/2 turn in my case). My cooktop had two burners with a low simmer feature, This devise is located in front of the bypass screw. It has a hole in it but does not align well with the head of the bypass screw and makes it difficult to turn the scew. Thats it, I hope this info has been helpful. I have not yet connected the propane therefore have not tested the unit but it should work.

If you didn't keep the original orfices for natural then you need too buy the burner orfices seperatly, and the oven regulator just needs adjusted you can go the frigidaires web site and download the installation instructions for the proper settings.

SOURCE: I converted my 40
I am having almost the same problem. Frigidaire told me to replace all 5 mixing tubes, ~$385, yeah right. They don't have the orifices itemized as an individual part, so no-one carries them, just the LP conversion kit. Another repair/parts guy advised me to drill out the orifices. Some other threads/blogs give the diameter to drill. Basically, since natural gas is 0.5 psi, you need a larger hole than your current propane orifices provide. Please speak up if you find out anything, I will try to do the same. Good luck.
